Top 5 Wednesday: Characters on the Naughty List

I think I’ve done something fairly similar… Or maybe when I see this topic, all I can think about are villains? (I did make a Top 10 Tuesday post about villains a while back…) But I supposed this list could focus on general crappy characters, not necessarily villains.

So let’s do this!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog meme started on Goodreads. You can check out the group and the topics here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Minor Characters

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog meme started on Goodreads. You can check out (and join!) the group here!

Today’s topic is Favorite Minor Character, which some consider not the same as side characters. Truthfully, I’ve never really given it much thought. I think my mind just simple stuffs not main characters as side/minor characters. Anyway, I won’t think too hard on it and neither should you (unless you have some strong opinions about it, which feel free to leave a comment about it!).

Top Ten Tuesday: All about the Villains!

Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. Today’s theme is villains and can be anything ranging from top ten favorite/most compelling villains in books, top ten of the most vile villains/bad guys in books, top ten villains I secretly (or not so secretly) love, favorite tv villains, favorite comic book villains, ten “villains” of contemporary lit.

I think I’ll do a hodgepodge because I’ve actually never done a post about villains or even considered them for a long time so here goes!

Top Ten Tuesday: All about Audio(books)!

TTT was created by the Broke and the Bookish. Check out the other topics and don’t forget to leave your TTT so I can check it out! 🙂

So today’s TTT is all things audio. I could do 10 favorite audiobooks, albums, songs, bands, podcasts, whatever really. I’m going to focus on audiobooks. They don’t seem to get enough love but all the ones I’ve listened to are so good! And they really do a great job filling up the drive to and from work and home for me.

Top Ten Tuesday: My ALL TIME Favorite Books of YA Fantasy

Omg, this is so hard, where do I even begin?! I thought about doing just fantasy but the truth is, I don’t read a lot of non-YA fantasy. YA is my go-to genre in everything so I though I at least could do myself a favor (!!!) by picking fantasy as my sub-genre! Still difficult though because there’s so many good ones! Ahhhhhh.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. Don’t forget to leave your TTT and I’ll check it out! 🙂

A few of my favorite things… (Part 1)

And by things, I mean books.

Also, did anyone else find themselves humming to the song from “The Sound of Music.” If not, here you go!

I’ve been struggling trying to figure out what to post about since I’m slacking when it comes to reading. Work has been busy and all I want to do when I come home is sleep. But that’s after I cook dinner, do some laundry, and take the dog out, lol.

Anyways, I decided to do a set of blog posts on some of my favorite books. I’m starting this one about some of my favorite YA book series! I’m so excited to talk about it! 😀 ❤

Review (reread): “The Winner’s Curse” by Marie Rutkoski

(And by “reread” I mean I listened to this on CD while driving to and from work. Hehe.)

Can I even talk about this series enough? Initially, I reread this because of the North Texas Teen Book Festival and the fact that the author was there, but I didn’t finish it in time. Regardless, I loved the book more than the first time I read it.

The narrator for the audiobook is Justine Eyre and she does a fantastic job narrating. I’ve learned listening to audiobooks that a narrator can really make or break it for me. (I listened to The Wrath and the Dawn on audiobook and wonder if I would have liked the book more if I had read the physical copy…) She added an accent for the Valorians while the Herrani sounded normal, which really added to the overall story.
